This is a small meetup group with active members that attend often. You may apply and be added to the wait list if we are at capacity as the group is never larger than 50 members. You should be willing to attend a meetup at least every other month to remain an active member of this group. This way you will get to know people within the group and feel like you are going out with friends rather than a group of strangers.
Meetups should be treated as a social invitation requiring a certain level of interaction that does not include discussing your ailments, surgeries, deaths and other topics of conversation not conducive to the enjoyment of others. Consider these meetups as a personal invitation to you from me and act accordingly. Last minute cancelations are rude to your host as it makes reservations difficult so do not sign up for a meetup unless you are sure you can go - a 24 hour notice of cancelation is expected unless you encounter a true emergency.
